The following birds are available for sale at this time. They are priced so the average person can afford them. So don't pass up some good birds just because they're not priced at several hundred dollars each. If you're at the other end of the financial spectrum, you need to realize that these are pedigreed animals and not street pigeons. The day of the five-dollar pigeon is long gone. They are priced so I can receive some reasonable return on the investment I have made in feed, time caring for them, etc.
What is a pigeon really worth? The value of a pigeon depends on three factors, and you can read about them here.
You will find some rare-colored birds among those listed. It is important to remember that we are a FLYING loft, not a COLOR loft. Our rare colors are required to fly right with the other birds. We sell youngsters that we raise out of our flyers, but we will seldom sell the rare-colored flyers themselves because we will be using them later as breeders.
I am selling pigeons, not paper, but almost all of those listed below have extensive pedigrees. I will provide whatever pedigree information I have on each bird listed. Feel free to email me and request an electronic copy of the pedigree of any bird listed here.
PLEASE NOTE: The last few years have seen significant increases in postal rates. Therefore, if birds are to be shipped to you (shipping to destinations in the USA only), the shipping charge will be $55 for one or two birds, $75 for 3 or 4 birds, $100 for 5 or 6 birds, and $120 for 7 or 8 birds to cover the cost of postage and a special USPS-approved shipping box. (Larger boxes not only cost more, but they also mean even more weight, hence the jump in shipping costs as the number of birds increases.) More than 8 birds will require a second box.
Payment can be made via money order (I do not accept personal checks) or you can use Visa or Mastercard by clicking on the Paypal logo below. Paypal is preferred.

Special Offer - Top breeders from my breeding loft.
Over the last few years I have experienced some back and shoulder problems that make it necessary for me to reduce the size of my breeding flock even more. For that reason I will be offering some of my top quality breeders, both in standard and rare colors. Please keep in mind that even the rare colors have been upgraded to racing quality. We have never considered ourselves a "color loft". We are a flying loft that likes to breed an eye-appealing variety of colors. These mated pairs will be priced at $300 a pair. Most pairs are blends of various families that have been mated for performance, with only a few being "pure" of a particular family. Many of these are down from AU Registered Champions bred by top flyers here in the Midwest.
|For serious inquiries only. Contact me via email and I will send you a list of what is available. (No whites available)|
This is not a white! It looks like a white, but it is an ash red brown qualmond barless cock, no. 3256 . The qualmond is linked to brown. Sire is a brown Qualmond barless that goes back to the long distance browns of the late Bob Eaton and 969 Janssen on one side and “The Iceman”, a 300-mile winner on the other. Dam is a yellow check carrying barless that flew 125 miles and placed 10th out of 113 birds and 5 lofts prior to being stocked. She is basically Janssen/VanLoon, and her sire is a diploma winner. His full brother was just sold on this site. Full pedigree. Price reduced: $100
|2.||2015 "white lace" cock. (spread recessive opal) no. 5015, bred from a family of opals that have produced several fliers for me, including "Snake River", a 200-mile winner who looks just like this bird. Sire of this bird is a full brother to Snake River, as well as another pigeon that was a 2nd-place winner. We did not fly young birds here in Ohio this year, because of a ban on pigeon races due to the avian inflluenza scare, so this pigeon has never been flown. He is on the lower end of being "medium" size with an orange eye, active and ready to mate. Full pedigree. Price: $150|
|3.||2015 almond cock, no. 5886, out of a pair of almonds on my flying team. Both parents flew twice from 100 miles and once from 120 as young birds in 2014 but were not flown as old birds since our old bird season was shut down early due to the avian influenza scare. Sire is a full brother to a bird that was 5th place in the MVS auction race in 2013 and also a full brother to a club winner at 100 miles; G-Dam is a Huysken VanRiel hen from Lighthouse Loft on Long Island. Dam is a granddaughter of an AU Registered Champion. Please keep in mind that this is a young bird and the flecking increases with each moult. Price: $100|
|4.||SOLD 2015 almond hen, no. 5028, HVR on dam's side and Janssen/HVR on sire's side. Dam raised a 5th-place money winner in the MVS auction race in 2013. Sire is out of an almond hen that flew out to 255 miles for me, and "7142", a cock that is a son of "Heisenberg", my best OB flyer of the last ten years. Please keep in mind that this is a young bird and the flecking increases with each moult. Price: $100 - Sold (MR)|
|5.||2014 blue bar hen, "One-Eyed Jill". She flew 100 twice and 120 once as a young bird, placing in the top ten percent on the 120. I'm not sure how it happened, but some time over the winter she injured her left eye and is now blind on that side, so I had to remove her from the flying team. Based on her pedigree I used her briefly this year and was planning to use her again next year as a breeder. Her sire is a son of "Heisenberg", my best flyer over the last ten years, and her dam is an AU Elite Registered Champion. She is primarily Janssen on her sire's side and Flor Engels on dam's side. Here's a proven flyer with a performance pedigree. I would use her myself but I have pledged to reduce the number of breeders I keep, so I am offering her here at about half her true value. Price reduced: $50|
|6.||2014 "Cherry" (red phase recessive opal) cock no. 4962, checker carrying barless. Sire is an unflown full brother of "Snake River", a 200-mile winner. Mother is a barless blue hen that is a granddaughter of the imported hen recently sold on this site. This is a medium-size pigeon that feels great in the hand. Although a late hatch that has not been flown, he is down from flying stock and should make a great breeder for someone. Full pedigree. Price: $100|
|7.||Here is one I truly don't want to part with; however, space and number limitations require that I do just that: 2014 "Shadow" grizzle cock. This bird was obtained over the summer from another flyer who had to dispose of her entire loft due to health issues. I was not supplied with a pedigree, but was told that he is down from the "Shadow" birds from Catskill lofts. He was flown out past 250 miles. That information alone is enough to want me to keep him, but having handled him numerous times it just reinforced my desire to do so. He is a fairly large pigeon, with extremely tight vent, strong muscular body and robust composition that just screams out, "Use me in the breeding loft." I still might do so, but I will then have to find another of the breeding cocks to go instead. Don't let the fact that there is no paper to go with him keep you from this outstanding deal. It he had the paper to go with him the price would be at least twice what it is. Price: $75|
|8.||SOLD 2013 "Schwarztiger" almond cock no. 36943. This pigeon is a grandson of "Heisenberg", a multiple race winner. He is also a sibling to several diploma winners. His mother is an almond that flew out to 250 miles prior to being stocked. She is a blend of Meuleman, Janssen, and Sam Lembo Roosen. Sire is almost entirely Janssen, but with a dash of HVR a few generations back; he also goes back to Assured Gold and Granger's Diamond, as well as "Dark Vader", a 600-mile winner in Europe. Full pedigree. Price: $150 - Sold (MR)|
|9.||2015 almond cock, no. 5887, out of a pair of almonds on my flying team. Both parents flew twice from 100 miles and once from 120 as young birds in 2014 but were not flown as old birds since our old bird season, as well as young birds, was shut down early due to the avian influenza scare. Sire is a full brother to a bird that was 5th place in the MVS auction race in 2013 and also a full brother to a club winner at 100 miles; G-Dam is a Huysken VanRiel hen from Lighthouse Loft on Long Island. Dam is a granddaughter of an AU Registered Champion. Please keep in mind that this is a young bird and the flecking increases with each moult. Price: $100|
|10.||Here's another 2015 almond cock no. 5878, also raised by my flying team, but with a totally different pedigree. His sire is 3026, a very nicely flecked 2013 cock that has flown twice from 100, twice from 120, and once from 180 miles. 3026 is a son of my foundation cock 6227, but will likely replace him in the breeding loft for 2016. Dam of 5878 is blue bar hen 4814, whose mother is an AU Registered Champion and her sire is my "Y2K cock". Full pedigree. Price: $100|
